Mubarakan Review by Bollywood Hungama
On the whole, MUBARAKAN is a fine entertainer that should appeal to the family audiences big time. It has a strong Punjabi element that should enhance the film’s prospects in North India, Canada and Australia. At the box office, it will have a good ride for a week as it comes sans any competition. Worth a watch.
Mubarakan Review by Firstpost
Anil Kapoor is the soul of this ensemble comedy and makes up in spades for the rest, who seem to be acting comedy. But since there’s little to pick between the performances of Arjun Kapoor, Shetty, D’Cruz and Sharma, Anil Kapoor can only do so much to compensate for their endeavours. If ‘leaving your brains at home’ seems difficult, you know what you should not watch this weekend. Fortunately, the humour does not degenerate to crass double entendres. Family entertainment is clearly at the core and Mubarakan manages to deliver enough laughs.
Mubarakan Review by Indian Express
So far, I’m not wincing. And then the post-interval set is upon us, and suddenly, the film’s funny bone gets lost. It becomes a long, maudlin harangue on family values and good sisters and brothers, while slipping in a few distasteful jokes about wives and women. And that Muslim girl angle? It is just a ruse, and a total cop-out.
A character says wearily: ‘kab khatam hoga yeh?’ And that’s the end of that.
Mubarkan Review by Bollywood Life
Arjun Kapoor approaches both his characters of Karan and Charan with equal zeal. He manages to ensure there is no overlap between them despite the fact that they look the same. Mubarakan is one of the most entertaining films of 2017. Arjun Kapoor’s double role act and Anees Bazmee’s superb direction make it a total paisa vasool experience.
Mubarakan Review by NDTV
Arjun Kapoor is far less consistent in his double role, but he does strike a few purple patches along the way, demonstrating a comic flair that cries out for a better film than this one. And that isn't a great idea: watch Mubarakan only if you dig comedies that do not demand that you dig deep for logic and meaning.
Mubarkan Review by Times of India
Anil is the scene-stealer with his half Brit-half Punjabi act lifting the film throughout. Arjun's double-act allows for some smiles and the girls, Ileana, Athiya and Neha are easy on the eye, though they're just decorative set-pieces. Giving away too much will spoil the fun that you're meant to have watching this. So you just have to go through this garrulous, laugh-out-loud affair with the usual patience and perhaps even some perseverance that you usually reserve for Bollywood comedies such as this one.
Mubarakan Review by Hindustan Times
Mubarakan is designed as a family film where comedy is generated through quarrelling relatives. This works initially but goes out of control later. But that doesn’t mean you won’t be entertained. You’ll be occasionally laughing, but probably won’t be leaving the theatre with a big smile on your face.
Mubarkan Review by Deccan Chronicles
Overall, Mubarakan is a happy film which is meant for your entire family. The film will surely get back the era of clean family entertainers. Don't expect an unusual plot from the film, but it is a decent watch this weekend.
